The CTK-601, in my opinion, is the single greatest synth since the TB-303/TR-909's. The sounds are so good, they're too good! When used as a standalone MIDI instrument, the fullness of the sound is remarkable! My favorite sounds are: #080, the SquareWave #081, the Sawtooth Wave #048, the String Ensemble #1 #030, the Distortion Guitar #090, The PolySynth (which I actually wrote a song about!) #000, Grand Piano. The Grand Piano is the most realistic sounding piano on a synth I've ever heard. My band teacher says that the piano on a Yamaha sounds better, but to me, it sounds like it went through a vocoder or something. Somehow he gets a "fuller" sound out of it...

If you want to hear some good midi's on it, I suggest looking for Havana Smooth (smooth.mid) from the game Rise of the Triad. Turn it up loud, and get ready for some goosebumps!

The best keyboard you can get for that price. Good sounding presets. A good synthesizer and a lot of useful functions. Don't waste your money on old synth crap, buy a Casio ! You will never regret.

Best sound for the money. Plus I got a free adapter and stand. I use this mostly as a MIDI controller, but when I need some nice drums I use the Analog kit. Here's a hint: If you want a phatter sound, it sounds real good if run it through some outboard effects.

I have a Juno-60 and a Jp-8000 (both by Roland of course) and a Casio Ctk-611 (same as 601, but w/ backlit display)still, time and time again, i go back to this lil guy and play play play. Its got some pretty cool piano sounds and what i like most about it is a a lil 6 track sequencer that i can program drum trax into while playin live with m' jp8000 and juno. theres 8 drum kits on the board, and they aint half that bad. what i usually do is cue up the sequncer and assign drum voices into them cool squishy yellow pads, and have a coordinating drum set on the keys on the bottom...its like having 2 drum sets at once!! then i jus let loose and program my sequnce onto the!! sounds like im a madman on a drumset..screw the dr-660 or tr 909...i got a Casio!! : ) thats not all i get outta this lil bugger. it has square and saw waves (both are basic foundations for analogue synthesis) sounds and some other cool synth leads. the synth basses are pretty cool too. both o them try to imitate Juno basses but synthbass2 does it VERY well. this things is soooo simple and fun to program too!! although its digital, its easy...i learned most of my basics before movin on to analogues from this thing. Ive been able to create some cool sounds (even sounds that my Jp-8000 makes!!) from this thing. Cool Psuedo filter sweeps too...built in speakers too...jus means you dont have to carry an amp around : ) if you wanna plug one in...go ahead ....i love the LCD screen too...i love it!! 5 outta 5!!
